Alberto Contador maintained his grip on the overall lead of the Giro d'Italia, while Sacha Modolo won a bunch sprint at the end of the 17th stage on Wednesday for his second victory in this year's race. A superb leadout from Modolo's Lampre-Merida team saw him beat Giacomo Nizzolo by a bike length to win the 134-kilometer (83-mile) leg from Tirano to Lugano, Switzerland, which featured just one Category 3 climb. ''I looked around on the hill about 4K from the finish and I saw that my rivals were maybe more tired than me,'' Modolo said.
